Toronto Yezidi Leader: We must destroy ISIS before they come to Canada

Marissa Semkiw of spoke to Mirza Ismail, a leader of Toronto’s Yezidi people, about the plight of Yezidis in Iraq, including his own family, who were forced from their home and are now living in tents in Northern Iraq.

Ismail also talks about Canada’s involvement in the region. This couldn’t be more timely, because xext week, Prime Minister Stephen Harper will seek Parliament’s approval to extend and expand Canada’s mission against the Islamic State in Iraq.

New Democrat Leader Thomas Mulcair has already declared his opposition to any involvement of Canadian troops in “what is simply not our war.”

    I disagree entirely with my tax dollars going toward this war. This is precisely what the Islamists want us to do as part of their strategy against the west….it is helping fulfill one phase of the the manifesto of al-Qaida (the creation of the Islamic Caliphate in 7 steps) ….The First Phase “The battle field is opened up and the Americans and their allies became a closer and easier target.” The terrorist network is also reported as being satisfied that its message can now be heard “everywhere.”
    Canada has less than nothing to gain by being involved in the Islamic holy war. There is no truth to the saying ‘we keep Canada safe by fighting them over there’. The ONLY WAY to keep Canada safe is to close our borders and relocate those muslims who are already here.

    • I agree, let the Muslims kill each other, rescue the Christians if there are any left but leave the Muslims to slaughter one another.

      I see no benefit sending our soldiers into harms way defending Saudi and Iranian interests,

        Killing them there is better than killing them here.

    Canadian Peacekeepers to any war zone = best plan, I think rather than sending in hundreds/thousands of troops.
    I sense that this virulent strain of Islam will implode on itself as time goes on.
